Leading luxury hotel The Okura Prestige Bangkok has the pleasure of announcing the appointment of Dutch native Niek Hammer as the hotel’s new General Manager, effective 15 August 2019.

The 42-year-old hospitality professional from Enschede in The Netherlands holds a Bachelor’s degree in Hotel Management and a Master’s diploma in International Service Management, both from the Christelijke Hogeschool (University of applied sciences) Noord-Nederland.

He began his career in 1996 at Hotel The Grand, a Westin Hotel & Resorts International property in Amsterdam and later spent two years at Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, a Marriott International hotel in Braselton, Georgia.

Married with three children, multi-lingual Niek joins The Okura Prestige Bangkok from Hotel Okura Macau where he held the General Manager’s position for three years. From 2000-2005 and again from 2008-2016 he worked at Hotel Okura Amsterdam, rising to Assistant F&B Director in his first stint and later to Deputy General Manager with F&B oversight as well.

Commenting on the appointment, Marcel P. van Aelst, President and CEO Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co. Ltd. Japan, said, “We know that Niek is dedicated and passionate in his work with a broad knowledge of complex F&B and Room Division operations. He knows the Okura culture very well and so will settle in Bangkok very quickly. He has great experience, he is energetic and efficient and his motivation and results-driven outlook will be of great benefit to our team.”
